Another path

Make the effort, expect to achieve. But don’t expect the achievement to unfold exactly the way you thought it would.

Plan carefully, without getting trapped by your plan. Pay attention to the plan, and pay even more attention to where the plan leads.

Don’t ignore opportunities, ideas, approaches just because you didn’t think of them when formulating your plan. Go with what actually works, not just with what you thought would work.

Be uncompromising about the goal. Be flexible about the way you get there.

Even when the path you’ve chosen is blocked, you can still reach the destination. There is another path, another approach that will bring you to the place you intend to go.

Keep up the effort, know that you can find that path, that you can travel that path. And you will.

— Ralph Marston
